Are you happy with the Sens' offseason moves?
Thu, August 28, 2008

The Sens are a team that went to the Stanley Cup final two years ago before suffering a disappointing season in 2007-08.

They have a new coach and now no more Ray Emery.

Can the Senators turn it around and make a fresh start next season? Have your say in our forum.

Any Sens fan that says they wouldn't have taken great joy in seeing say Tucker, or Domi in his day, levelled the way Alfie was - and sustaining injuries - is not being honest with themselves. Either that or they should be enjoying maybe the ballet or symphony on their free nights vs. an NHL game.

It was a clean hit with both referees concurring apparently. Alfie blames himself for not being aware of the play around him and he doesn't blame Bell, from anything I've read or heard. That should be the end of the discussion (although I'm sure there are a lot of cement-heads out there who will want to continue the debate).

I'll say it again for those who refuse to understand - hockey hall-of-famer Scott Stevens made a career out of hits like Bell's the other night. We can only hope that the art of the open-ice hit is back with Bell's effort - and not a more deserving target than Alfie (known for cheap hits from behind, firing pucks at opponents after the whistle, mocking the great and always classy Mats Sundin with a fake stick throwing jesture, etc.)

Who's the moron Leaf fan boasting about winning cups? Try winning a cup in a league with more than 6 teams you fool! ACC crowd's conduct was deplorable - I was there. Heatley wasn't intoxicated and it's fine to make fun of washed-up jailboy Bell because his mistake luckily didn't injure anyone. It's a joke - hopefully jailboy's cellmate is a Sens fan :)

well, at least they not growing their fat asses on our tax money.

ottawa has grit? i guess thet's why they got trhu the second round of the play-offs once...

James, calling all Leafs fans "blue collar" is a blanket statement, for sure. You probably don't live in or around Ottawa 'cause there aren't many Leafs fans in suits around here, that's for sure. If you lived here, you'd know what I mean.

Like I said before, I like and respect blue collar workers. I come from a long line of them and used to be one myself.

I think that the Suits at the ACC squeeze out the regular fans from getting seats, at least that's what I've been told. Maybe that's why so many Toronto fans attend Senators home games.

That, or the Plumbers Union bought 6,000 season's tickets this year!

JUST KIDDING!!!

His hit was of the same type he delivered on Tucker except his took place out in the open ice. What goes around comes around.

oh, yeah. let's bring up the off-ice stuff. this is the "class" of Hens fans? i guess Heatley's accident was a lot different then Bell's. He killed his friend and teammate and got nothing for it.
Peter, 2008-04-04 16:15:48

Not sure why everyone's calling Leaf fans blue collar.....I've seen a lot of "suits" in the seats at the ACC....and with the priciest tickets in the NHL, it's primarily white collar salaries and corporate accounts that scoop the majority of Leafs tickets.
James, 2008-04-04 16:05:42

Mike, I see where you're going with this.

Heatley's "incident", while utterly tragic, was an isolated one as far as I know. Mark Bell has been behaving like a jackass for years.

I'm not that upset by the hit, actually. It was borderline for sure but I accept the ref's decision that it was legal. What I dislike is spectators cheering the injury and jeering Alfie's attempt to get off the ice.

There's a few bad apples in every basket. Surely not everybody in Toronto is happy with what went down.


Playoff Bound, 2008-04-04 15:58:39

Whether the hit was clean or not - I think the bigger issue is the lack of class leaf fans showed by cheering for an injured player. I'm aware of the history between Alfie and Leafs, but come on I've never seen that outside of a boxing ring. Leaf fans should be as ashamed of themselves as they are of their team. You put the 'ass' in class. Go Sens!
